What’s New and Exciting in 2020!

  • Issues related to classification and staging of carcinoma of the lung, incorporating the AJCC 8th Edition Staging, and emphasizing details and problem areas.
  • New developments/new guidelines for molecular testing of lung and mesothelial tumors
  • New developments in the classification of interstitial lung disease including the 2018 ATS Practice Guidelines for IPF
  • New markers to separate benign from malignant mesothelial proliferations
  • A discussion of malignant mesothelioma in situ



You need to make critical diagnoses and decisions and keep pace with rapid advance in morphologic diagnosis, immunohistochemistry, and molecular biology of lung and pleural pathology. This course will provide you with practical approaches to diagnosis and will also emphasize the clinical and particularly radiologic findings needed for diagnosis. A brief review of normal lung anatomy and common conditions will form the basis for discussion of more difficult and unusual diagnoses.


You will hear about new classifications of lung adenocarcinomas, the 8th edition staging of lung cancers and carcinoid tumors, as well as guidelines for accurately separating lung carcinomas by histologic subtype; recent updates in interstitial lung disease classifications; the separation of benign and malignant mesothelial proliferations; the latest molecular diagnostic techniques for pulmonary and mesothelial tumors; and advances in understanding and diagnosing pulmonary infections and in diagnosing lymphoproliferative disorders in the lung.
